MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama
Director: Cecil B. DeMille
Cast: Charlton Heston, James Stewart, Betty Hutton, Cornel Wilde, Dorothy Lamour, Gloria Grahame, Lawrence Tierney, Bob Carson

Not a bad movie but the passage of time hasn’t been kind to it. The things that made it popular upon its release either don’t apply or don’t work for a 2018 audience.

Garland’s unwillingness to compromise has resulted in a film whose ideas and philosophy demand thought and dissection and are not easily dismissed or forgotten.

Run Time: 1:57
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-05-22
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Drama
Director: Todd Haynes
Cast: Oakes Fegley, Millicent Simmonds, Jaden Michael, Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams, Cory Michael Smith, Tom Noonan, James Urbaniak

Run Time: 1:11
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-05-22
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Sally Potter
Cast: Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy

With a svelte running time of about 70 minutes, "The Party" doesn’t overstay its welcome.

Canny enough to go full-throttle with the absurd and not bother trying to do much with its meager dramatic and/or sentimental elements.

A deliciously perverse, unflinchingly violent espionage thriller that breaks with the tradition of making the spy business the purview of suave characters.

Run Time: 1:46
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-05-22
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence, Profanity, Bullying)
Genre: Drama/Fantasy
Director: Anders Walter
Cast: Madison Wolfe, Imogen Poots, Zoe Saldana, Sydney Wade, Rory Jackson, Jennifer Ehle, Noel Clarke

The vivid cinematography, affecting performance by Wolfe, and lack of saccharine allow the film to resonate.

It sloughs off the generic label that adheres to many films of the genre, providing an experience that is by turns exciting, emotional, and funny.
